The Original Navan Market

When: May 29, 2022
Where: 1279 Colonial Road, Navan

Note from The Original Navan Market Family

(Republished) In light of the horrific storm that took place on Saturday and the devastation that has rocked through our Navan home, we have decided with heavy hearts to postpone the May 29th market.

Our hearts lie with helping the Navan community get back on their feet, and we feel this is the priority at this time.

We hope you can all understand as we don't take postponing a market date lightly, but our community has fallen enough, and what we need now is prayers and help with the cleanup.

We may have broken hearts now, but the sun will shine through again.

We will rebuild, and we will continue to come together and stay #NavanStrong.

If any of you wish to help in the volunteer efforts to help clean up the Navan community, please reach out to us at onmnavanstormcleanup2022@gmail.com to be added to our volunteer resource list, where we will pair you with someone who needs help.
